Malarkey Legacy Shingles Reviews

Everything but the kitchen sink dimensional:  Malarkey decided to put everything it has into the Legacy series of shingles.  Henceforth it comes with the strongest warranty protection such as a 50 Year limited product warranty.  Every feature and piece of technology available in the cheaper shingles has been put into this shingle.  First, yes it is an SBS shingle giving it the Class 4 impact resistance typically used for hail protection. The exclusive Scotchgard technology allows a 20 Year algae resistance.  Yep you guessed it the Zone nailing system for ease of install.  Fire rating – best you can get at Class A fire rating.

Malarkey Legacy Shingles Pricing

This is the top of the line shingle in the dimensional style and you will pay for it,  however for the technology and longevity it is really a value at $110-125 a square.

Malarkey Legacy Adding SBS in a traditional design really ups the bar for a dimensional shingle. 20 Year Scotchgard, Class 4 impact rating etc, this shingle is a beast.
